What It Means to Rewild What It Means to Rewild By: Patrick J. Kiger Published Aug. 29, 2014 In a remote corner of the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina, eight miles from the nearest town, a man named Thorn lives in an improvised hut that he built from wood and leaves, dines upon beans and squirrel meat, and wears mittens fashioned from raccoon pelt. In a day and age when most of us depend upon elaborate electronic gadgetry and dine upon food grown on industrial farms, Thorn aspires to be a self-sufficient modern primitive, who relies upon the forest around him for his daily needs.
